St. Francis Xavier School

St Francis Xavier School is a Catholic Community we stand ready to serve all who are in need.
We value in a special way the handing on of faith and tradition through our parish school, religious education, and Christian formation.
Strong in faith and proud in tradition, we continue to be concerned for and responsive to the needs of all God's people.
We believe in God's love through the gift of Christ's presence in our lives.
In faith, we are all called to realize our gifts of time, talent, and treasure and to express and to share these gifts through the various ministries with the whole community.
Our strength in these ministries comes from the celebration of the sacraments, the support of prayers and the sharing of fellowship.
